which can be a misdemeanor

If this happened to you, you can fill out a police report
and press charges against the person who did this. If the police tell you that this is a civil matter, you can go directly to the DA's Office and try to file your complaint
with them. The DA's Office has plenty of work to keep them busy, so sometimes if a complainant has a civil remedy, the DA may suggest that you proceed civilly as well. But as your facts do make out a crime, they will take your wish to prosecute into consideration.
